Philatelic Collection

The Philatelic Collection is the Museum’s most recent collection, documenting the history of postal services from the beginning of the 20th century onwards. It collects franked and unfranked postage stamps (regular, commemorative, postage due, airmail, military, express mail…), advertising leaflets, maximum cards, several postage stamp draft, as well as a large number of telephone cards. The Slovenian Post kindly provides us with a copy of all current publications.
